The Oakland Adult and Career Education, an adult education program with Oakland Unified School District is currently providing ESL Family Literacy courses for parents, with children attending an Oakland K-12 school. This award-winning program, which boasts 2018 National Center for Families Learning Teacher of the Year, Beth Detwiler, has adopted the National Center for Families Learning (NCFL) model. This model focuses on four key components for enrolled parents: learning English as a Second Language, developing parenting skills, understanding their child’s age-appropriate education, and provide literacy activities between parents and their children. The primary goal is for parents to adopt a better understanding of Oakland Unified School District culture, their children’s education, and their family’s English language development.
